#111: Desert Island Book Choices


This week, you’ve got questions and we do our best to answer them on topics ranging from choosing to shoot in color or black & white and best practices for deliverables to getting your work in front of art buyers and whether or not a signature “look” to your work is important. Someone even asked for our desert island book choices. Listener-suggested Australian Magnum photographer Trent Parke is our Photographer of the Week.
